We completed our week living on rations and although it was sometimes difficult dealing with the restrictions I think there is definitely a place for this kind of living in modern society. Today our living is all about excess. Living on rations for a week has forced me to be more mindful of what I'm eating and the food I'm using. As there is not a lot of food we made sure that nothing went to waste by ensuring all parts of the food were used and ensuring things got eating before they went off.
The hubby and I actually had some rations left at the end of the week as we didn't use any of our butter!
